I had a brilliant long weekend recently with friends in Galway. The rural landscape was untouched and around the peat bogs the views looked almost prehistoric. When I saw some low-flying herons go by, they looked just like terydactyls! The weather held up for most of the trip except for a spell on a beach in County Clare where my OMD was subjected to a torrential 10 minute downpour! The weather-sealed camera did much better than my supposedly waterproof jacket and boots!
